The Waterfront Blues Festival starts TODAY! This Portland hallmark event has become a treasured tradition for locals and visitors alike.

More than a quarter century old and going strong, the nation’s second largest celebration of blues, rock ‘n’ roll and soul takes place right here in Portland.

It’s four stages, 100 acts, five cruises, two after-hours parties, dance competitions and July 4th fireworks draws more than 100,000 people, and all proceeds support the Oregon Food Bank. This is the organization’s largest fundraising event.

This year’s lineup is one for the record books! Acts range from the legendary Buddy Guy and Greg Allman, to the 17-year-old YouTube sensation Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Galactic with Macy Gray, Dave & Phil Alvin, Charmaine Neville, Allen Toussaint and The Paladins.
